Amazons and Their Men at the Ohio Theater
Clubbed Thumb presents Amazons and Their Men, by Jordan Harrison, opening at the Ohio Theater on 5 Jan 2008, following previews from 3 Jan and running through to 26 Jan 2008.
Amazons and Their Men: The Frau used to make beautiful films for a fascist government. Now she's trying to direct a film that's simply beautiful. The Frau casts herself in the lead role of the Amazon queen Penthesilea, who falls for Achilles on the battlefield of the Trojan War. But when her actors start disappearing, it becomes difficult for the Frau to ignore the real war outside her sound stage.
Directed by Ken Rus Schmoll, Amazons and Their Men features Gio Perez, Heidi Schreck, Brian Sgambati and Rebecca Wisocky.
The creative team features Sue Rees (sets), Kirche Leigh Zeile (costumes) and Leah Gelpe (sound).
